Compiling Chromium browser for XP

Recommended Posts


Thanks for the answer

Windows Explorer can automatically read images in thumbnail mode

Open source management repositories due to the massive amount of source code and resources should always be wary of malicious code that can be loaded into the repository.

So, I am quite wary of downloading source code from the repository

While I'm doubting an individual can backport XP easily, it's certainly not impossible considering Maxthon, UC Browser, Coc Coc, Slimjet, Chedot, Advanced Chrome, and a couple more.

We just need to figure out how exactly they backport the newer code and what code is removed during the process. I would say building on top of Advanced Chrome for XP would be a good place to start, if anywhere. Problem is that newer versions of Chromium removed the support. Looking at here, the Google developers changed the compiler:thumbdown

any luck?

No 1: 

 

No 2:

 

Four attempts, no luck. It's not easy for countless reasons that I don't wanna keep repeating in each and every post. I'm becoming pragmatic: the modified source code is there and available. Wanna help? Publish commits, otherwise being yet another person asking for it won't help us. Yes, we do want Chromium on XP, but don't expect to have it by some sort of magic stick that makes it work. I had four goes at it, trying to backport it, working together with @Dibya and Samuel, but we failed. The last attempt got very close, but guess what? It's not working. Why? I partially know why. Will I try to have a fifth go at it and try again? Maybe. Will I do it right now because yet another person asked it? No. This is something me and other people are doing in their spare time so don't hold your breath.

 

Good afternoon,

Frank.

Frank,  you are blocked, you ridiculously rude as*****. 

I see no rudeness whatsoever in Frank's post. Yours, OTOH, is unnecessarily offensive. People nowadays are too oversensitive... :crazy:

I also don't see how frank was rude at all, sounds like you could use an emotional support animal.
